Booked this for Labor Day weekend primarily for the cheaper price ($140). Rooms were decent and clean; we had a patio with 2 chairs. Also on the property were picnic tables, wooden swing, playground area (swings, slide, sand area, basketball hoop).
Breakfast was included but it was nothing to write home about (bagels, biscuits and gravy, instant oatmeal, cereal, juice, and coffee).
Walking distance to gas station and souvenier shop, also to the main strip with the restaurants and other hotels. Free shuttle to the Star Line Dock to go to Mackinac Island, but the motel is within walking distance (about 15 min.).
My niece enjoyed the patio, my nephew enjoyed the basketball hoop, and my sister is already talking about coming back next year.
